2015 is here! I hope you all had a safe and happy New Year's Eve. I spent the evening on my Mama's farm in Eastern Oregon with a wonderful group of friends and neighbors, each of whom brought beautiful plates of farm fresh food and hand cured meats, jugs of home brew and a variety of cheeses, chocolates and wines.
At the end of the evening as the new year approached we lit and released four Chinese sky lanterns in the the cold night air. It was 9 degrees, but we were all warm and toasty in our coats, aided by the alcohol and warm artichoke dip. Cheers to the new year and may you manifest peace, contentment and all that your heart desires in 2015.
